Denied permission to modify my files

Well I have a gallery that I was deleting but I have a lot of pictures that I cannot do anything to e.g. CHMOD, delete or rename.
I tried in the online file manager, online ftp and my ftp program and I can't do anything with them.
My username is daveoh and I am trying to delete "/gallery" if an admin can help


You can either use chmod in php (as in this post: to change the permissions, or log in to your account and use the contact form to request that directory be deleted (to verify that you actually are who you say you are ;))


Ok well trying in PHP didn't work either (I get the warning "open_basedir restriction in effect. File(my_evil_folder_goes_here) is not within the allowed path(s): (/tmp/:/fpgs/fpgshttpd/daveoh/:/fpgs/fpgslogs/47459/:/usr/share/pear/)") so I hope an admin can delete my folders before they take over everything!


You must enter the full path of the directory you wish to remove.

i.e. /fpgs/fpgshttpd/<username>/foldername

Also, the function will only remove directories that are empty.

Thank you, Admin
